This 15 Minute Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms dish will produce the tastiest, softest and most buttery mushrooms you’ve ever tasted!
When life throws 70 hour work weeks at you, sometimes the only thing you desire to do is to sit down to an easy, quick and absolutely delicious home cooked meal. This thought is exactly what came to my mind when presented with the welcome challenge of what to make with my MELT® Organic; a dish that could easily be made after a long day’s work that would feel and taste as if you were transported into a 3 starred Michelin chef’s living room. I bring to you, the magic of sautéed garlic mushrooms: whole sautéed mushrooms, garlic and MELT® Organic.
Before I get into my love for this dish, you know I have long been an ambassador for using vegan substitute ingredients and only those that I feel with taste exactly or as close to as possible as it’s non-vegan counterpart. When the Mr. and I popped the seal on our MELT® Organic and spread it across a few slices of toast, for sampling reasons of course, the first words to pop out of our mouths at the same time were “This tastes just like butter!” followed by silence in the room as we finished chomping on our deliciously warm and now buttered slices of toast.
MELT® Organic is a brand relatively new to me, but one that I will definitely be buying for years to come. I’ve been substituting vegan butter for regular butter for months now, and finding a product that not only tastes amazing on toast but also in and on everything else has been a bit of a challenge until now. This butter, really, does do it all.
I’ve now used MELT® Organic for cooking, baking, sautéing, and grilling and can safely say that it is has won me over in all these categories and I’m sure will in those I’ve yet to explore. The butter is a perfect blend of different oils – virgin coconut, flaxseed, hi-oleic sunflower, palm fruit, and canola, of which coconut oil is my favorite,, and keeps its required consistency whether it needs to remain cold but also melts, as the name suggests, quite beautifully when it needs to.
I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten enough toast for the rest of the year – again in the name of sampling or experimenting! – because of how smooth and plainly buttery this spread is! It has the right amount of saltiness needed for a perfect butter and matches all of my own criteria for product that is Non-Gmo, filled with good-for-you fats and ingredients in all respects. The spreads are dairy free, soy free, trans-fat free, and gluten free. And now, to the star, the garlic sautéed mushrooms.
Any vegetarian will tell you that mushrooms are often the star of their lives in many, many meals, from burgers to gravies to sautéing the mushrooms on their own. I’m convinced that the MELT® Organic added it’s own smoothness and creaminess to these 15 Minute Garlic Sautéed Mushrooms since this is honestly the best I have ever had them.
The recipe is so simple, with only a few steps of sautéing the garlic, then adding the mushrooms until caramelized, and then devouring them immediately after, not before taking quite a few “tastes” (in the name of experimenting?) before it can even reach your plate. This is essentially cooking your mushrooms in butter – what could get better than that? – except Melt Organic Butter is much healthier and provides way more dimensions in flavor. The parsley adds an extra layer of freshness to the dish while the garlic adds a delectable aroma that fills every inch of your kitchen. My mouth is watering all over again just thinking of this dish. I love these these are also healthy sautéed mushrooms, making them a win, win.
